that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the great crisis we need to fear. those that have said have been wrong, two years ago was supposed to be then. at least they're backing off it being so soon. that's eroding the underlying nature of the argument. >> does this help explain why they're doing nothing, the debt isn't a big deal? >> they a sequester, what more do they need. >> ezra klein gets the last word. >>> "the ed show" is next. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched aga
said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the war was over. let us admire and respect the position of a former president, as well as the words from a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 million civilians. today is not a day to cheer for success. but it is a day to remember those who fought hard to avoid the war's tragic consequences. get your cell phones out. >> michael moore was booed off the stage for denouncing the invasion of iraq. so much for these bleeding heart liberals in hollywood. let us not forget the response from around the globe. u.n. secretary annan said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the
, but he's turning it over to his new secretary of state. >> john kerry is very interested in pursuing this. they knows the region very well, and president obama said, fine -- in a way this trip -- this is an unusual trip in that president obama is advancing the secretary of state, who is here right now, but will be coming back pretty frequently, so president obama is not going to -- he's going to talk about the palestinian issue in his business speech tomorrow, i think, but bakley he's trying to set the stage to reset the relationship with israel, with its government in particular so that john kerry can come in and with new ideas and be received, better than some of obama's first-term ideas were received. so there is a point to this trip, but it's a building block trip. >>> jeff goldberg, thank you very much, as always. >> thank you. >>> and up next, in our "daily fix" who killed the senate assault weapons ban. >>> plus mark sanford survives round 1 in south carolina, and why is bill clinton getting involved in the kentucky democratic senate race against ashley judd? send me your thoughts

"morning joe" starts right now. >> what went wrong? why are we further away from a two-state solution? i'm curious. what do you believe went wrong? did you push israel too hard? mr. prime minister, i want to help out my colleague over here. do you accept the president's understanding that iran is a year away when it comes to nuclear weapons? another question i had for you -- >> chuck, how many do you got? do you guys do this in the israel press? you say you get one question and you add like five? you see how the young lady from channel 1, she had one question. >> these are commuter questions. reiterations. >> i thought i had five. i get four questions, right? >> look. this is n

." for the latest, let's go to nbc's kristen welker live for us at the white house. senators lindsey graham and john mccain have just issued a statement warning that if the use of chemical weapons is verified, then the united states must take immediate action. i have to ask you, kristen, how is the white house responding to these disturbing reports out of syria? >> reporter: well, they are quite concerned about the reports out of syria, martin, and i have to tell you, there are still a lot of question marks. the white house making the point that they are looking into the allegations that chemical weapons were used in syria. as you pointed out, the government is pointing fingers at the rebel forces. the rebel forces are pointing fingers at the government. you notice the language that jay carney used today was quite different in terms of referring to the rebel forces. saying at this point in time there is no credible evidence to suggest that they used chemical weapons. they are taking these reports very seriously, though, and trying to determine if this was, in fact, the case. now, of course, presiden
committing to dish out three million. do you think it's a good idea for john boehner, eric cantor and kevin mccarthy whose names are on the court case from the house representing the house gop and the bipartisan legal counsel to continue this fight, $3 million of taxpayer money to oppose doma? >> well, look, this is a position of our party. but, you know, our point in the report, luke, is that, you know, when i was asked at the national press club i think one of the reporters asked me and he said are you still going to fund, you know, rob portman? my response is, of course we're going to help rob portman. he's a good conservative republican. my appointment, luke, i'm not going to get into this sort of back and forth with leadership, but what i will tell you is i think our party needs to have the attitude that if i disagree with you on one issue, it doesn't mean that you're a lousy republican. it means that you're a good republican. it means we agree on most issues and we need to unite our party. we can't build our party if we're going to cut out certain pieces and certain parts that we may
colleague, karen tumelty and john morris. my mentor. harry reid focusing on the positive in some way said that this universal background checks will in the bill. what he didn't say is that high capacity magazines, banning those, and the assault weapons ban will not be, they'll be offered as amendments, what does this say about how much the political climate, if at all has changed as it ties to guns, karen, since what happened in newtown, connecticut late last year. >> well harry reid says he's basically counting the votes here. there are not the 60 votes it would take to overcome a filibuster on the tougher measures, i think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, t
presidential campaign i worked for john kerry and dick gephardt two great progressives and being for civil unions in that campaign was considered the leading edge. >> it was a big deal then. >> big deal. in 2016 every democrat running for president will be for marriage equality. you know, frankly, i think the republicans as we saw with rob portman last week and the report they put out yesterday are starting to come our way, too. it's only a matter of time. >> that was my question. do you think that, well, if any democrat or for that matter any republican can get through 2016 that the obvious pickle is for republicans who are trying to get through the primaries? >> i think it'll be tough for a republican but if i look at "the washington post"/abc poll yesterday, 81% of people under the age of 30 -- 81% are for marriage equality. if they're not going to be for it in 2016 they're going to be for it in 2020 or 2024. >> vice president biden, maryland's governor, martin o'malley, of course new york's governor andrew cuomo, all of them for same sex marriage. do you think we'll see a sort of a win

and not a plan to move forward. >> okay. john, mr. priebus had his birthday this week, 41 years young. my colleague asked him this morning if he thought the gop would evolve to a platform of marriage equality by the time he's 50, in nine years. a fair question. take a listen to the response. >> well, i don't know what's going to happen in nine years, luke. i know what our principles are and i know our party believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. but i also know that we have a party that's going to be inclusive. >> right, john, so he says they're opposed to including same-sex marriage in their platform but they are going to be inclusive. how does that actually work in practice? >> i'm not sure because he's not defining inclusive. he answered the question but not answering the question. look, he's right when he says that the republican -- that the republican party just isn't there on marriage equality. they believe that. marriage is between one man and one woman.
